The Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) has announced through press releases that two more athletes have been disciplined: one for an Athlete Biological Passport (ABP) blood value anomaly and the other for testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs).

On March 16, Bahraini athlete, Hassan Chani, was found to have an adverse finding in the ABP, a charge has been issued.

Greek javelin thrower Ioannis Kyriazis turned up a positive doping test with a prohibited substance and is suspended for four years dating back to May 31, 2019.

Chani is a Moroccan-born 10,000-metre runner who switched to Bahrain for apparent financial benefits. The 31-year-old won gold at the 2018 Asian Games that took place in Jakarta. He went on to pick up a silver medal from the 2019 Doha, Qatar World Athletics Championships.

His personal best is 27:38.16 from June of 2018.

Kyriazis is a 24-year-old javelin thrower who owns a best of 88.01-metres from 2017.
